Albany Primary gets moving for 2018

Andrea Smithson
Albany Primary School

Things are off and moving at Albany Primary this year!

We have a new Your Move parent team (taking over from our amazing previous school champion) and an enthusiastic group of Year 5's who are our Your Move team for Term 1. Their first task was to do our Hands Up survey, which gave us some very encouraging results to kick off the year - increases in all forms of active transport compared to our last survey and from the same time last year!

Our Walking School Bus is also going from strength to strength, and has attracted more children and parent volunteers to get the year started.

We have lots of great things planned for the rest of the year - watch this space!

Thanks all for the comments! Germaine - the Walking School Bus has been ever-evolving since it started a few years ago, and we are always looking for improvements in the way we coordinate it. If you'd like to drop me an email at, I can fill you in a bit more on how we are running it at the moment. Thanks :)
